by Sarah M. Eden
Seriously, how many times can I say how much I adore Sarah M. Eden? Simply put: I haven’t read a bad one by her yet!
This time, we get a bit of Regency PTSD. This is long before there was a name for it and the men had to just move forward with no help. Their wives, or the women in their lives, had no idea what they were dealing with and nobody spoke of it. I can’t even imagine. I am really glad that she decided to write on this topic!
Sarah continues on with the saga of Jonquil brothers that we all know and love. This time, the focus is on Captain Stanley Jonquil. Of course you are going to love the characters. They are always written with depth and wonderful character. Make sure you pick up a copy of this great read!!!
Thanks so much for this great book in exchange for my thoughts. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

I love books that deal with real, dark and deep issues. In A Love Like Ours, Becky deals with the tough issues of PTSD, single parenthood and a terminally ill family member. She doesn’t pull any punches, but really puts them out there. There are real relationships with God and that is another thing that is often times glazed over.
Jake Porter has come home from serving in Iraq where he was injured and saw the death of those he was close to. Lyndie, his childhood best friend, has come to work for him exercising his thoroughbred race horses. While there, she senses that God is calling her to a deeper issue than horses. She knows that God wants to use her to help Jake heal.
Absolutely loved it. The writing was wonderful, the characters were loveable, and the story held my attention. The only thing that I did not like was the idea of a girl saving someone that doesn’t believe in God. I don’t think it’s ever a good idea to be in a relationship, or physical with someone that is not on the same page. Especially when it’s the idea of changing or healing him. As a novel, it was fantastic. As a true to life, I would say almost never. Still, the book was really great! Becky is a truly gifted writer!! 5 Stars!
Thank you, Litfuse, for giving me this awesome book! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

How do you go from being the most highly trained warrior, in one of the most infamous battles of our time, to full time family man and a 9-5 job? In this follow up book to best seller SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper, we find the story behind what got him through those darkest and hardest moments. As he strives to find his worth and a place in the world, he takes us through his struggles and most intimate failures and weaknesses.
I found that it was virtually impossible to set this book down. The writing was excellent and the story kept you wanting more. PTSD is such a scary topic for, both, those that experience it and those that know nothing about it. Having someone so respected and so in love with Jesus, openly dealing with his wounds, will bring about healing in many lives. Howard and Debbie are beautifully human and loveable in all their faults.
Please pick up a copy. This is a book you won’t regret reading; especially if you are personally struggling with PTSD, or know someone that is. (Link is in the picture above).
Thank you, BookLook Blogs, for sending me a copy of this book for my opinion. Here’s to many more!!
